Winter is here! How did that happen? 2021 has gone by incredible fast! Regardless, if you're ready to hibernate but still craving some outdoors-in, a lush green houseplant is surely one of the best ways to nest. Here are six of our favourite houseplants for surviving the cold this winter.
Also known as 'Mother's Tongue' this beginner-friendly plant thrives in full sun or almost no sun, making it perfect for year round. A decorative vertical structure that doesn't take up too much space, the plant is available in beautiful variegated varieties to elevate your home.
A delicate flowering houseplant available in a variety of colours, 'orchids', 'moth orchids' or 'phalaenopsis' thrive on neglect, blossoming in low light and only needing about two to three tablespoons of water every two weeks. A perfect plant to add to a bathroom area as they do enjoy humidity, this plant is available at Lucy's Florist here.
Although they naturally grow in deserts, cacti are one of the best cold-resistant plants to grow inside. They of course require very little water and don't even need soil to grow (they're air plants). They will, however, require a position within your household that gets full to partial sun during the day .
Prefer a flowering plant to brighten up your space? The cyclamen is another plant that flourishes in cooler temperatures, enjoying a well-lit, airy position such as a windowsill that sits in partial sun during winter.
Interested in purchasing a cyclamen plant? Shop this indoor plant at our store - it comes wrapped with a raffia ribbon, or presented in a ceramic pot.
Also known as the Heartleaf Philodendron, the Philodendron Scandens is another great bathroom houseplant that enjoys humid environments, and well light to low light conditions. A vigorous grower, this gorgeous plant can grow over 10 feet long in good indoor conditions.
